We’re delighted to report that our Art on the Bus ArtsMobile project for the Youth Showcase yesterday was a big success! Ruth McKerrel, who is team leader at St Martins, has been busy for days preparing as well as a late night last night/early start today to make this happen. We also had a dedicated team of Sarah (Arts Assistant), Liz Went, Emma (team leader for Les Genats) and Teresa Stoakes (Community Arts Commissioner) who helped to pull this together and worked hard on the day with 460 children! Carolyn (Arts Marketing Manager) and Sarah have been working away on sourcing the materials and preparing everything in the ArtsMobile as well.
We were very fortunate with the timing of a sponsorship cheque of £500 from Deutsche Bank courtesy of Adaliz (Community Arts sub-committee member) as the arts materials were expensive.
A tired team at the end of the day, but it was fun and rewarding.
Have a look at the pictures for a glimpse of the works created, inspired by Renoir!
